Chevrolet is well aware that no two truck customers are the same. This is why, only a few months ago when they announced the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, they had given consumers the choice between eight distinct trim levels. It has only been a couple of months since Chevrolet announced their new Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and already, they are back with more amazing news! Chevrolet has just announced five trim levels for the all-new 2020 Silverado HD, giving customers more customization options for their trucks.
What’s New With the 2020 Chevrolet HD
The new redesign for the 2020 Chevrolet HD has turned out to be one of the most ambitious and spectacular styling experiments in the industry. Featuring a bold, intimidating face and unique design, the 2020 Silverado HD sets its sights on standing apart from the Silverado 1500. GM designer have nearly overhauled every exterior piece of this truck with the exception of the roof. The most noticeable difference may be the re-imagined front end. Unlike Chevrolet models of years past, the some of the new Silverado HD trims will do away with the iconic bowtie and replace it with a Chevrolet stamped bar. Exterior remodeling will also include bumpers, four steps to access the truck bed, as well as a two-door option not previously available. In addition to the redesigned exterior, it will be available with a new gasoline engine with direct injection, a Duramax turbo-diesel V8, higher towing and payload capacities, and brand new trailering technology.
The 5 New Trim Levels
As with the 2019 Silverado 1500, each 2020 Silverado HD model trim will offer a different level of design, features and technology. For the new model year, the Silverado HD will be available in Work Truck, Custom, LT, LTZ, and High Country trims. As stated previously, each of these trims will feature exclusive external design elements as well as a wide range of options for features and technology.
“Truck customers are very clear: They want the perfect truck for them and not a ‘one size fits most’ truck compromised for the masses,” said Mike Simcoe, vice president of GM Global Design. “ We took into account every detail of what customers expect, and how they will use their truck. The results are unique versions of the Silverado HD equally at home working on a construction site or pulling a camping trailer.”
Currently, the information for each trim option has not been made public. However, there have been some confirmations regarding the High Country trim.
The High Country will lose the “Chevrolet” badge across the front of the grille on the Silverado 2500HD and in its place will be the traditional bowtie logo. The truck will also feature 20-inch chrome wheels, chrome side mirror caps and a metal skid plate instead of the plastic version available on the LT trim. Extended running boards will provide easier access to the cab and the rear bumper will be body-colored rather than metal.
Chevrolet expects the Silverado HD to be available for purchase by mid-2019. News regarding the upcoming trims continue to roll out, so be sure to stay tuned for more information including specifications and pictures.
